SJR State extends Respiratory Care application deadline to Oct. 1
St. Johns River State College has extended the application deadline for the Respiratory Care program through October 1, 2012. Classes will begin in January and are based on the St. Augustine campus with selected clinical education courses scheduled in health care facilities within the regional area.
SJR State's Respiratory Care program provides students with the knowledge, attitude, and skills required to help meet the growing demands for respiratory therapists in the health care industry. Students will be trained in the skills needed to work in areas such as pediatric care, nursing homes and in hospitals. Asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, lung cancer and pneumonia are some of the conditions that require the care of a respiratory therapist.
Upon successful completion of the degree requirements, qualified students will be eligible to apply to take the national certification exams for Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) and Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT), both administered by the National Board of Respiratory Care.
Admission requirements and prerequisites apply. Visit the Web site for more information at SJRstate.edu or call (904) 808-7465.
